Dave Zeal is our second scout from Italian net-label Sine3pm (after Daniel Maze). He is making music for as long as he can even remember: playing piano in the childhood, appearing in some teenage bands, and finally he found himself in computer music. Working with numerous granular loops with automated controllers for filters, effects and pitches, Dave is creating very solid, stylish and beautiful ambient techno. Maybe somehow and sometimes it's a little bit too minimal, but we still enjoy it... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: top40, top-40.org, top 40, dave zeal, ambient, glitch, melodic, glitch-pop, minimal, ambient techno Source: top-40.org

Erik Satie (1866-1925) was a legendary French composer known as one of the earliest forefather of ambient and minimalistic music.

Daniel Maze is a young composer from Canada, Vancouver. As he told me about himself, "I’ve been into music all my life". I bet he was! After releasing two brilliant mini-albums on Italian net-label Sine3pm, he delivered a blow again with his Treehugger EP, released on 12rec.

Elementary EP is "a must-hear" work for everyone, submerged in lo-fi... favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 3 reviews ) Topics: top40, top-40.org, top 40, daniel maze, ambient, glitch, melodic, glitch-pop, lo-fi, field...
